Saint Gilbert?by Joseph Pearce
Here’s a great article on the great GKC. You will not, and probably should not, agree with everything but nonetheless it is a well written article on the arguments for Chesterton’s sanctity.
Mr. Stewart Goes on Radioby Daniel J. HeiseyJoe Queenan, writing “In Praise of Libraries” in the March, 2015, issue of The Rotarian, described public libraries as places of adventure and serendipity, where through books someone can discover new people, places, and things. Some libraries, though, also take one into unexpected areas by means of old movies, and sometimes even through old-time radio shows.
In several rooms adjoining the public library in Indiana, Pennsylvania, is the Jimmy Stewart Museum, preserving the memory of that small town’s most famous son. One can get to the museum either from the library or from the street, and the museum brims with Stewart’s movie posters and memorabilia, as well as family photographs and artifacts. Also on display are his uniforms from his twenty-seven years as an officer, ultimately a general, in the United States Air Force.
